The past versions of Firefox brought a feature to it that a great deal of users didn’t like because it changed the way tabs are handled in a window. Instead of just showing all tabs at once, Firefox now adds horizontal scrolling to the tab bar in order to prevent the tabs from becoming too small to read its name. That way you can always see what’s on your tabs but don’t have a complete overview of the whole bar anymore.
In order to help out on that an add-on was created that increases the number of tabs that are visible before the overflow scrolling occurs.
It’s called Prevent Tab Overflow and you can find it in the Firefox Add-On database: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/noverflow/
Add it and it will get to work instantly. Have a look at the Add-on preferences (Tools>Add-ons>Extensions>Prevent Tab Overflow>Preferences) to see what you can actually do:
While the add-on cannot prevent tab overflow as whole, it can resize the minimum tab width down to 40 pixel (the default in Firefox is 100 pixel). A lot more tabs fit in that way and the scrolling kicks in on a point where it actually makes sense not to shrink the tabs any further.
The All-In-One-Gestures plugin for Firefox is a plugin that enables you to accomplish nearly every task you want to in Firefox with the help of drawing lines on the screen. You just need to assign the directions for the common task in the preferences and start drawing:
By default, the key for drawing gestures is the middle-mouse key, meaning the mouse-wheel, which can be changed however. The plugin is highly customizable as you will see on first glance when opening the options window, it is also updated regularly to be up-to-date with Firefox’ fast updates.
To show an example, as seen in the options table above, the following gesture will duplicate the current tab:
Gestures are shown as red lines on the screen by default so that you can see what you are drawing. Additionally, the tool can be misused to draw funny pictures on your Firefox windows!
